I knew that it is possible to programmatically force the browser to open a new window instead of a new tab, or the other way round. But I didn't know until now how to open a new tab together with text or code 'of my choice'.
The text or code we may want to 'add' to a new tab must have the format of a string. The more complex the text or code we want to add, the bigger the danger of making mistakes in writing the string.
As part of a school website's responsive rebuild, I wondered if it would feasible to remake this dartboard-esque "faculty web" menu and convert it from an image into pure CSS. Well, it *is* possible, but not without glitches - follow my journey from this to this (best viewed in Firefox, Opera and Chrome) below, and grab a more refined "take-away" freebie too.

As window.innerWidth/Height and element.clientWidth/Height are also supported by older browser, a technique using these methods must be preferred. Demos and explanations here.
